Saturday Family Workshop Grayscale Drip Painting with the Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center
Guild Hall’s Saturday Family workshops are the perfect way for families to take part in shared learning and creativity. Each session allows families, ages 4+, to explore and reflect on the works exhibited in Guild Hall’s Museum as they create unique works of their own.
From reimagining famed abstract expressionist works to experimenting with charcoals, each Saturday Family Workshop provides a new viewpoint and level of engagement to the current exhibition, Robert Longo: A History of the Present. Workshops are led by a rotating team of locally based educators and artists, embracing the diversity and artist colony of the Hamptons.
A single registration is for families of no more than four people.

The Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center is a National Historic Landmark, a federal designation that recognizes its significance as one of the nation’s most important cultural monuments. It is also a member of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program. Built in 1879, the house is typical of the 19th century farmers’ and fishermen’s homes in Springs, a hamlet in the Town of East Hampton. Pollock and Krasner made many changes to the building after moving there. It contains all the furnishings and artifacts that were in the house at the time of Krasner’s death in 1984, some of which were there during Pollock’s lifetime, including his hi-fi phonograph, his jazz record collection, and the artists’ personal library. An original late 1930s painting by Pollock, Composition with Red Arc and Horses, and prints by both artists are on display. The house also features changing exhibitions of artwork related to the Study Center’s mission.
